Listen in as the St Clair Sinclair DNA study interviews Mike Maglio, head of Origin Hunters.

When you get your first batch of results back, you expect all the answers. But, in fact, you need a lot more detail to truly make that set of numbers have meaning. Researchers like Mike Maglio add meaning to those numbers and bring an incredible amount of clarity to those seeking answers about their genealogy.

I first discovered Mike's work when I was doing online searches for the descendants of William the Conqueror. He thinks he's getting close to identifying the actual living descendants of this famous man. His process for getting to these kinds of answers will be fascinating to hear about.

We'll also quiz Mike about his recent work on a rare SNP currently called L11*/P310*, on the DNA of Thomas Jefferson, and on the Big Y test and the future of genetics for genealogy.

Please join Sinclair DNA on Blog Talk Radio for a very detailed and interesting show.
